This week Apple hosted their annual World Wide Developers Conference. Last year some of the big announcements were OS Yosemite and iOS 8, revisions for Spotlight, iCloud Drive, the iPhone App Health and the continuity feature of Handoff. After the release of new products like the Apple Watch and the announcement of Apple Pay earlier in 2015, the anticipation around this year’s WWDC was high for any improvements and software updates, and Apple didn’t disappoint.

Apple’s latest 10.11 version of OS X focuses on better performance and window organizing features. With the minor fixes Apple made to the Yosemite update, the user experience with the successful OS will only get better. One of the biggest features Apple fans have been waiting for is the split-screen multitasking, also new touchpad gestures, and the Spotlight search has been updated again. The final release of OS X El Captain is set for the fall.

Finally a longer battery life! The new iOS will use less processing power, taking less time to charge your phone and adding additional hours to your phone use. Hooray!! Another awesome adjustment was made to the process in upgrading your iOS. Now it will only take 1GB to upgrade your device instead of 4GBs, you won’t have to go through your phone deleting pictures or music to clear space in order to update your iPhone or iPad. Siri has also received an upgrade as a “proactive assistant” anticipating needs you might have before you even ask.
